We are the Veritones, a co-ed a cappella singing group at Harvard College. Founded in 1985 by freshmen (including Academy Award winner Mira Sorvino), the group originally sang spirituals. These days, we are known for a diverse repertoire, our offbeat sense of humor, sense of public service, and friendships that make the group more than an extracurricular. We entertain Harvard faculty and students, as well as perform a variety of private and public venues throughout the year in the Boston-New York area. Our annual traditions include a 3-5 day trip to NYC before Christmas break, skiing in Vermont over intersession, and retreats on the Cape or in woodland log cabins. On a broader scale, we go on an annual summer tour. Past destinations have included Great Britain, Colorado, and San Francisco. The musical taste of the The Veritones reflects the diverse talent of our members; we sing jazz standards such as "Mood Indigo," 80s pop like Madonna's "Vogue," the soft-rock of The Counting Crows, the country strains of the Dixie Chicks, and the mellow folky sounds of Marc Cohn's "Walking in Memphis." We've released seven CDs to date. The most important quality of the group by far, however, is the love we all have for each other. We're not a singing group whose members are friends, but really a group of close friends who have a great time singing at a professional level, laughing hysterically, and enjoying our time together in the unique world of collegiate a cappella.
